The hotel is located above the Joe's Garage eatery and very centrally located on Devon St. Easy access to shops, restaurants and cafés. It has been very tastefully decorated with interesting ornaments and paintings. It has a nice Guest Lounge. The rooms are not big but well appointed, with good use of the available space. The sandblasted-glass door to the bathroom is probably not a good idea after all (leaves little privacy to the person inside!). The access to the carpark is tricky. One has to walk around the block and through a dark alley with the luggage. Not ideal. However, it is hard to imagine another solution, given the configuration of the building. A back-door access could help perhaps (if negotiated with the neighbour business), as well as offering extra parking places. We had to park on the street twice, because all designated 6 spots had been taken.

We enjoyed our two night stay in the State Hotel and would definitely recommend it as a place to stay. The hotel is conveniently located in central New Plymouth and everything is within easy walking distance.While the rooms are small, they are clean and comfortable, well appointed and modern. The hotel itself is old and full of character. Comments- if you are a larger person you might find the bathroom a bit cramped and I didn't see a lift, so this hotel might not suit someone with mobility problems.

Beautiful Room, and so handy to everything in New Plymouth. 5 min walk to Supermarkets & Shopping centre.. highly recommend for young couples as a bar/pub is right downstairs, but you can barley hear anything upstairs.. Awesome place to stay!!

Rooms are smallish but very nice, fresh and clean. Have 2 chairs and very nice shower/toilet, TV, fridge and microwave and friend's room had a small table. Beautifully decorated lounge with reading chairs and TV. Whole place has very tasteful European decor. Nice location on Main Street with plenty of restaurants in walking distance. We walked to Beach promenade evening and morning 2 or 3 blocks down. Overall we would strongly recommend for a lovely base. Also a laundry and dryer room which looks free to use (we didn't need it) and has a clean spare toilet.
